One of my favourite poems is by Richard Hugo and contains the line: “May your favourite tree be blooming in December.” It’s a rather melancholy poem in its entirety, but isn’t that a wonderful line?
In the spirit of December-blooming trees, I leave you for the season with these Christmas wishes:
May your inlaws be sweet and reasonable.
May your spouse be grateful.
May your turkey be moist.
May your mornings include quiet moments.
May your presents include books.
May your house smell of pine and cinnamon.
May your children be like sugar plums.
May each day be full of blessings.
See you in the New Year!
